Anaconda – another wave energy plant

From the UK comes another wave energy project called Anaconda. The project is initiated and developed by Checkmate Seaenergy Ltd. The company did research for the past five years and has now presented the project. The name occurred because the generator is an up to 200m long and 7m wide rubber tube. The company forecasts Anaconda to be the most cost effective wave energy device of the world, producing one Megawatt for only 12 US-Cent per hour. See for yourself:
